Mine does, for grade 10/11/12. Didn't take it this year because I've got a heavy course load and need my spare periods, but I'm lucky the grade 11/12 class goes down during my spare. When I'm free, I hang out there.

It's a wicked autoshop, we have 2, but only one is used daily. The one that's used has 2 two-post hoists, lotsa stuff. The teacher, a REAL licensed mechanic, will fix your/your family/teacher's cars for no labour charge, and can get parts at wholesale from UAP/Napa.

He'll do decently big jobs, but nothing huge, ie, rebuilding your motor or replacing your engine/tranny. Just not enough time.

Took first year auto mech. in high skool. It covered basic car maintanence. Regretably, I didn't continue taking it teh following years because I wasn't interested at the time.

We had it all 4 years of hs as well. The paint quality was shitty I know that. The instructor let them practice on a 67 vette with a blown 350ci every year for graduation. (don't know anything about it) I just remember the paint jobs were always crappy looking.

They did have 5 service pays tho... Nice.

the 1st didn't have lifts,tire balancer, tire mount. brake lathe
the second had everything. i spent my last 2 yrs in high school taking that class twice a day. we did engine swaps and gas to electric conversions.security hated me cause i would alway leave school ground cause i had to go pisk up a part :lol: they'd throw me in detention then when they leave the teacher let me out cause i worked on his car. i also forgot to return 2 books at the end of the year but since i also worked on the book keepers car she let it go. damn i had so much pull in that school:disappoin i miss it

Mine did, and I regret not taking it.

It would have been nice to get my feet wet in the automotive world a few years earlier than I did.

75mph was the top speed but after 60mph it would shake badly. we ran it with m/t drag slicks and it still spun those we had vw wheels on the front. it was sick

Yeah, my school did.

The teachers were wicked ******** (not white trash at all), so they had a SC'ed Camero and something else, but they would 'show it off' by putting 50 foot black streaks down the road (these were like 10" wide tires!)

Cool stuff.
